THE JUNIORS 



[2(1 



The Juniors 

From the starting point the enterprising nature of the Junior Class 
has been shown by the help its masculine portion has given in reaping 
victories^ along the lines of football, basketball, tennis and track work. 
In addition to its capacity for furnishing worthy combatants, an enter- 
prise along a still different line appeared even in the Freshman year of 
this class in an innovation known as the "Butler French Club," which, 
however, met with an early death, due chiefly to the fact that the majority 
of its members left Butler to enter fields of Pedagogy. 

The girls of the class have been particularly active in various phases 
of Y. W. work, from dressing dolls for the Christmas settlement chil- 
dren to enforcing attendance at mission study classes. 

The climax of the social life of Butler for the year 1912-13 was 
reached in the Junior Prom, held at Woodruff Place Club House on the 
evening of F'ebruary second. The grand march was led by President Ed 
Lewis and Vice-President Marie Peacock. 

If the early career of the class in \-arious strifes was a foreshadowing 
of what it was to meet in its Junior year, the struggle for maintaining 
the old custom of editing a year book was that for which that preparatory 
course was intended. In the face of much opposition, the persistent 
efforts of the Drift staff on behalf of the class succeeded in producing 
the Drift, modified somewhat in form from those of former years, at 
the suggestion of the Faculty. However, it maintains the custom that 
the Juniors have adhered to for years back, of assuming the responsibility 
of editing a Year Book for Butler. 

The officers of the class of 1914 are: President Ed. Lewis; Vice-Presi- 
dent, Marie Peacock; Secretary, Mable M. Felt; Treasurer, Robert Buck.

THE SOPHOMORES 

[22] 



The Sophomores 

From those Olympic heights to which they have ascended in the brief 
space of one year the class of 1915 upholds the lofty reputation which 
they won so speedily. A year ago their great success in all student 
activities was termed but the precocity of infants. Now the fairly won 
laurels decorate their humble brows. 

As Freshmen they both conformed to, and broke down the trammels 
of custom. They conformed with the usual non-resultant class election. 
They upset the custom of years by handily beating the Sophomores in the 
annual football scrap. 

This meteoric success has been continued. All precedents were over- 
thrown by the institution of the Sophomore Hop which proved the chief 
social event of the year. Football, basketball, debating, oratory, have 
alike brought honor to the class. 

May this progress upward and upward be continued until the class of 
1915, to its last member, has reached the zenith of its college career, — 
a sheepskin. 

The officers are: 

President ------ Harold Summerlin 

Vice-President ------ Hazel Gay 

Secretary ----.. Mary Jackson 

Treasurer -..--. Albert Tucker

THE FRESHMEN 



[24] 



The Freshmen 

It was with a right merry heart that we came across the campus tor 
the first time last September. 

The driving rain that fell in torrents during matriculation day could 
not dampen our spirits nor drown our desire to become the most wonder- 
ful of P>eshman classes. 

We had rosy visions of seeing our respective names published on the 
honor roll of the college. Had we not every reason to be sanguine as 
to our work? Did not the report card, which we had tucked in a corner 
of our trunk at the last moment, give proof of our brilliant high school 
career? 

But alas! a very few of us ha\'e startled the professors with unusual 
precocity. The work which would have brought us an "A" in high school 
was scarcely deemed worthy of a "C," and thus have oiu- castles been 
toppled down. 

The officers of this worthy class are: 

President --------- Merle Smith 

Vice-President ----- Geraldine Eppert 

Secretary and Treasurer ------ Ralph Tapscott

COLLEGIAN STAFF 



[28] 



The Butler Collegian 

The Butler Collegian is the so-called official organ of Butler College. 
Its policy IS governed by the editor, subject to the oversight of the faculty. 

It was founded in 1886 as a monthly literary magazine and was pub- 
lished by the five literary societies of the college". In 1899 The Collegian 
became a news weekly as at present, with a monthly literary supplement 
which has been discontinued. This was a step, according to the editor 
at that time "toward the final goal of journalism, a daily journal." 

I'his final goal has not yet been reached, although there are those who 
still hope to see the day when Butler College can issue a daily newspaper.

YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION CABINET 



[30] 



Young Women's Christian Association 

The past year has been the most prosperous in the history of the Butler 
College Young Women's Christian Association. 

The meetings have been unusually interesting and well attended. The 
meetings each week have been of various kinds — several of musical nature, 
Bible study, reports of the foreign missionary field, and plans for our 
Geneva delegates. 

The girls have taken a deeper interest in the Christamore Settlement 
and have taken charge of several classes there. The annual doll show 
was held before the holidays and the dolls with proceeds derived from 
the show were presented to the Settlement. 

The social side of the Association has not been neglected. In addi- 
tion to the usual joint reception in the fall, spreads have been held 
in the Y. W. C. A. rooms at various times. 

The Mission Study Class is progressing and has an average atten- 
dance of fifty members. This class is under the leadership of Professor 
C. T. Paul. ■ 



[.^1] 




Y. M. C. A. CABINET 



[M] 



Y. M. C A. 



The Y. M. C. A. of Butler College has been doing better and iiuire 
extensive work this year than it has ever done before. 

Its cabinet is composed of men noted tor their energy and ability, and 
its work is planned and executed by various strong and efficient com- 
mittees. It has a membership of 25. 

Both the State and City organizations have assisted the Association 
very materially in securing good speakers. Some of the best known 
professional and business men in the City have addressed the men at 
the mid-week meetings upon interesting and inspiring subjects. 

The Association has also supplied men for teaching foreign classes., 
conducting boy's clubs and charitable work. 

A gospel team of fi\'e men did excellent work at Kirklin, Intiiana, dur- 
ing the Christmas holidays. 

Upon the broad plane of the interest of its cabinet in the religious 
welfare of the men of the College, has been erected an organization 
that attempts to touch each man in his everyday life, and in such a way 
that he will never forget the spiritual impressions of his College days.

Butler College, was organized in 1870 at the old \orthwestern Chris- 
tian University. 

In its conception the Society was exclusively for the benetit of minis- 
terial students and no women were admitted. After several years of 
prosperous existence the Society was reorganized. Its privileges were 
extended to other than students preparing for the ministry. During the 
years of the existence of "Philo" in Butler College, it has been known 
solely as a literary society, admitting to its membership both men and 
women.

DEBATE AND ORATORY 



[42] 



Debate and Oratory 

In Debate and Oratory Butler has had a successful year in spite of the 
fact that the squad was developed almost entirely out of green material. 
The great need at Butler is for a continuous debate class which will 
prepare men for the work on the squad. 

Two separate debates were held this year. Earlham College met defeat 
in the Butler chapel at the hands of an entirely inexperienced team com- 
posed of Paul Ward, captain; John Moffat and Bruce Robison. 
On March 20 a new team, composed of Robert D. Armstrong, captain; 
Paul Ward and Ralph Arnold journeyed to Albion, Michigan to debate 
Albion College, well known as the strongest college in Debate in the 
middle west. Butler lost by a narrow margin, the judges admitting that 
the Albion men were saved only by their splendid delivery. In both 
debates Butler upheld the negative of the question: "Resolved that the 
President of the United States should be elected for a term of six years 
and should be ineligible for re-election." 

In Oratory, Butler was creditably represented by Robert D. Armstrong, 
who, in spite of lack of experience, secured third place on manuscript. 

Next year Earlham will be debated at Richmond; Hillsdale College, 
a new opponent, will be debated at Hillsdale, Michigan, and Albion ^yill 
come here. This debate may be in the form of a triangular including 
Miami University. Practically all of this year's squad will return next 
year.

Social Life at the College Residence 

Festivities at the Residence opened last fall with a general reception 
given by the members of the Young Women's Christian Association. A 
very delightful musical program had been arranged and several clever 
readings were given. 

The next event of general interest was the series of afternoons known 
as Social Assemblies to which all women of the college were in\-ited. These 
delightful periods were suggested by Miss Katherine Graydon who secured 
the services of IVliss Anna Stanton. The final Assembly was a cotillion. 
The dining hall and drawing room were thrown together, excellent music 
was furnishetf by piano and drums, and cotillion favors were bright 
colored and attractive, adding much to the beauty of the scene. A huge 
bouquet of yellow chrysanthemums was presented to Miss Stanton by 
the members of the Lotus Club, under whose auspices the Social .Assem- 
blies were given. 

During the following term the Lotus Club gave a matinee dance at 
the Residence for the college girls. A large attendance, good music, and 
delicious refreshments made a delightful afternoon. 

Two dinner parties have been given at the Residence this year. The 
first was in observance of the coming holidays at Christmas and the guests 
included Miss Graydon, Mr. and iVIrs. Chauncy Butler, Mr. and Mrs. 
Kenyon, Mr. and Mrs. Danton, and Mr. and IVIrs. Putnam. A turkey 
was placed at each end of the two long tables and the four gentlemen to 
whose lot it fell to carve, proved themselves experts, though 'tis whis- 
pered that some credit should be given "Vogt" for tender turkeys and 
"Nathan" for sharp carving knives. The place cards were decorated 
with holly designs and the tables were beautiful with tall vases of red 
carnations and flat decorations of asparagus vines and ferns. 



[631 



The second dinner was given on St. Patrick's Day to celebrate the 
close of the winter term. Everything possible was in green in honor of 
old Ireland from the Irish spuds liberally sprinkled with parsley to the 
green and white ice cream and the frosted cake crowned with mint cherries. 
The place cards were decorated with small Hags of Erin. 

Among the most delightful of the many charming hospitalities ex- 
tended in Irvington on Founder's Day was the luncheon in honor of 
the visiting mothers of the young ladies who live at the Residence. The 
dining room, with tables decorated in great clusters of yellow daffodds 
and lighted by yellow candles set in quaint low holders, suggested a 
spring day in its bright coloring. Among the guests were: Mrs. Grace 
Davis of Indianapolis; Mrs. I. N. McCash of Cincinnati; Mrs. T. F. 
Askren of Cumberland; Mrs. F. L. Smock of Southport; Mrs. T. P. 
Kinder of Greenfield; Mrs. Ida Boos of Indianapolis, and Mrs. D. O. 
Thomas of Minneapolis. 

During the winter term Miss Butler and the young ladies of the 
Residence have observed the second Monday of each month as an at 
home day. A very large number of Indianapolis and Irvington friends 
took advantage of the opportunity to call on these days. The rooms 
were always bright and pretty with lights and flowers and one was always 
sure of a cup of tea among a delightful company of college girls. 



The Lotus Club 

This is an association whose object is the bringing together socially 

of the young women in College, thus encouraging friendly intercourse 

among them. The club is governed by an executive board elected at the 
end of each year.

Freshmen Poetry 



ODE TO A FROG 

Oh frog, that sits in a bright tin pan, 
Blinking your eyes as only frogs can. 
Tell me, I pray, do you dread vivisection— 
To be cut up alive for class inspection? 

Amphibian of motley hue, 
I weep to stick my knife in you; 
But froggie dearj I can't relent, 
In search of knowledge I am bent. 

Sweet "Haustier" (as the Germans say), 
Your nerves, your veins I know, versteh. 
But what your life is, what makes you — 
To that, I own, I've found no clue. 



AURORA 

The morning gray is creeping o'er 

The hazy eastern sky. 

The waves are dashing on the shore, 

The ships are passing by 

As on the ocean's brink I wait. 

Till rosy fingered dawn 

Is ushered through the opening gate, 

Aurora leading on. 

Behold! she comes majestic, grand! 

Her garments brilliant, gay. 

Accompanied by a fairy band. 

She brings the perfect day. 



THE MAGIC IN JUNE 

Lie on the grass where the raveled clouds edges. 

Wind-swift, trail surges of shadows along. 

Close both your eyes — know the blue's still above you, 

Under you, earth, and beside you, a song. 

Fill all your soul with the smell of the dusty, 

Fragrant, half-stifling breath of the road. 

Winding, forgetting itself on the hillside, 

Under that summer cloud's cumbrous load. 

Lose all your logic, your why and your wherefore — 

Can't you forget that your world's out of tune? — 

Follow your fancy away on the wind's wings. 

Only remember — the magic in June.

Football 



The football season of the fall of 19 I 2 was one of the most 
successful ill the history of Butler. The men worked hard and 
faithfully and deserve great praise for their untiring efforts to 
bring glory to the White and Blue. Too much credit can not 
be given to the coach George Cullen Thomas for the showing of 
the team. He not only taught the men how it was done, but in- 
stilled spirit and fight into them. 

The early season prospects were excellent and the candidates 
for positions on the team could be found toiling e\'ery afternoon. 
A large squad of candidates reported and started the grind. 
Later the number began to dwindle and it was hard to Hnd 
enough men to get scrimmage practice. 

When the first call was sounded old B men who were present 
were Morgan, Burkhart, Tucker, Paul, Pavey, Badger, Summer- 
lin, Stermont, Lewis, and MuUane. This was the largest num- 
ber of B men who had returned to school for several years and 
their spirit was soon instilled into the new men. Every man was 
for the new coach and upon this spirit the machine which was to 
Hght for Butler was built. 

Oct. 5. The first game fulfilled the fondest hopes of any 
Butlerite when the team came out victorious over Hanover by 
the score 54 to 0. 

Oct. 12. Again the team was victorious and won laurels from 
the Franklin team with the score of 25 to 0. This game was 
played at Franklin and was a hard fought victory. The Franklin 
team played a good game and were in the scrimmage until the last 
minute. "Pete" Morgan proved the star of the game with his 
long end runs and successful forward passes. 

Oct. 18. The Wabash "Little Giants" proved too much for 
us at Crawfordsville and we went down to defeat 47 to 0. The 
men played a hard game and deserved credit in defeat. 

Oct. 26. We defeated Earlham 13 to 0. The game was 
played on Irwin Field. This was the first time that we had de- 



feated Farlham in three years and all Butler went wild. The 
players fought to a deserved \'ictory. Not one minute could a 
man be seen out of position or fighting with less than every 
ounce of strength. The work of "Pete" .Morgan was sensa- 
tional and wonderful. The I'.arlham men were unable t<j hcild 
him and he carried the ball for the Butler points. 

Nov. 1. Transylvania was defeated by Butler 28 to U at 
Lexington Kentucky on a muddy field. The FransyUania team 
did not show the expected strength and the victory was easily 
won. 

Xov. 9. Butler defeated Moores Hill 52 to 14 on Irwin 
Field after a rest following the long trip to Kentucky. The 
Moores Hill team showed up well at times and succeedetl in 
scoring two touch downs. 

Nov. 16. Butler went to Greencastle to meet the DePauw 
team and was defeated 17 to 3. The Butler men seemed unable 
to get together in the usual style and the DePauw men carried 
the ball at will. 

Nov. 28. The season closed with a final defeat for us at the 
hands of the Rose Poly team by the score of 13 to 6. I'he 
game was played at Terre Haute. The Butler team at times 
outplayed their opponents but were unable to win the game. 

Sixteen men were awarded sweater coats bearing the official 
Butler monogram in honor of the work done during the foot- 
ball season. Every man who has the honor of being allowed 
the coveted insignia must represent Butler in at least six hal\-es 
in regular games. 

The following men were awarded the monograms: John 
"Pete" Morgan, Jesse Pavey, Everett Badger, Charles Good, 
Verl Wise, Justus Paul, Dan Mullane, Glen Wise, Clarence 
Burkhart, WinHeld Stermont, Louis Kirkhoff, .Albert Tucker, 
Harold Summerlin, Ralph Tapscott, Arthur Lockhart, Captain 
Edwin Lewis.

BASKETBALL TEAM 



[70] 



Basketball 



The start of the season was delayed greatly. The lack of 
practice early in the season showed its effect and the team work 
was not much in evidence during the first of the season. With 
only Captain Silvers and Richardson of last year's regulars left 
around whom to build a team, the development of three new 
men was necessary. This, with the late start and a number oi 
accidents proved too great a handicap for the team. 

Jan. 12 State Normal defeated Butler in the Butler Gym- 
nasium. Lack of team work caused the defeat of the Butler 
team although the individual work of the men was good. 

Jan. IS. Butler went to Terre Haute and met defeat at the 
hands of Rose Poly by the score of 31 to 21. Butler guards 
were unable to cope with the giant forwards of the Rose team. 

Jan. 22. Butler was again defeated by Earlham 26 to 23 at 
Richmond. The Butler team was ahead until the last few minutes 
of the play but was unable to hold its lead. 

Jan. 24. The Earlham team came to Indianapolis and again 
defeated Butler 27 to 21. 

Jan. 28. The first victory of the season was scored v.hcn 
Butler defeated Franklin 21 to 18 on the Franklin floor. 'Fhe 
Butler men played furiously through the contest and deser\ed 
the victory. 

Jan. 31. State Normal defeated Butler at Terre Haute 43 
to 33 in a loosely played game. The absence of Paul weakened 
the Butler team and it could not follow the pace of the Norma 1- 
ites. 



I'eb. 4. The second \ictory of the season was won by the 
Butler team when it defeated the Hano\er team 26 to 18 at the 
]. N. G. armory in this city. 

F'eb. 8. Rose Poly came to the Butler Gymnasium and de- 
feated Butler 19 to 17 in a fast and close game. The game was 
in doubt until the last minute. The score was tied time after 
time by Butler but Rose forged ahead in the last minute of play 
and Butler was defeated. 

F"eb. 11. Butler went to Crawfordsville and was defeated 
by Wabash 46 to IS. The Wabash team outclassed the Butler 
men. 

Feb. 21. After a long rest the Butler five scored another \ic- 
tory over Hanover by the score of 26 to 17 at Hanover. The 
game was well played by both teams. 

Feb. 28. The season was closed with a defeat at the hands 
of Franklin in the local Y. M. C. A. The game was fast and 
well played by both teams. The contest was close and two over- 
time periods were necessary to decide the winner. Captain Sil- 
vers was the star of the Butler team and played a wonderful 
game, closing his basketball career at Butler. 

The tw^o games scheduled with DePauw were cancelled by the 
DePauw team because of their lack of adequate playing quarters. 

Seven men won their monograms. They were as follows: 
Captain Xerxes Silvers, Justus Paul, \'erl Wise, Charles Good, 
Arthur Lockhart, Thomas Richardson and Robert Kennington.

IRWIN FIELD 



[72] 



Art Department 



A very interesting side of the work of the college that is missed by 
the majority of Butler students is that of the Art Department. This 
department is in charge of Miss Myrtle Taylor and is very interesting, 
for besides the inspiration that comes from the artistic atmosphere of 
the Studio, there is the social side, which is not neglected. The treats 
that often follow the class hours are enjoyed by all the members and 
will be remembered in connection with our art work. 

Miss Taylor is well known in art circles and her work has become 
so well known that the entire January number of "New "i ork Keramie 
Studio" was devoted to her work. The work of her students as well 
as her own has received honorable mention at the National Exhibits at 
Chicago. Miss Taylor also devotes a part of her time to the decora- 
tion and designing of private residences.

A Vest-Pocket Essay on our Much Neglected Chemistry Lab 



A chemistry "lab." is a necessary discipline for life. He 
who can calmly look on while his favorite Hask shatters at the 
critical point of an experiment, can cheerfully burn clothes, fingers 
and face and patiently manufacture ammonia, cabbage, garlic 
and rotten egg odors in the long balmy afternoon by the heat 
of his Bunsen flame while his comrades gleefully disport them- 
selves upon the green, is "some chemist" as Bob Masters would 
say, and more than that, a martyr who puts the ancients burn- 
ing at the stake distinctly in the shade. One thoughtful inmate, a 
descendant of the famous John Gilpin of Londontown, realizing 
the stress of mind under which his fellow-sufterers labored, and 
the peculiar temptations incident upon their vocation, did com- 
pose for their guidance the following ten commandments. 

1. Thou shalt not heat H= S O' from under the hood. 

2. Thou shalt not leave the H- O turned on. 

3. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's beakers nor flasks 
nor the test tubes nor anything that is thy neighbor's. 



4. Thou shalt return the reagent bottles to their proper 
places. 

5. Honor the "Prof." 

6. Thou shalt not contaminate the contents of thy desk bot- 
tles by sticking thy platinum wire in them. 

7. Thou shalt wash up e\'ery e\ening. 

8. Thou shalt have thy note books in on rime. 

9. Thou shalt not cut class. 
10. Thou shalt not chew. 

Having spoken of the mental aspect of the "lab." let us now 
turn to the physical, which has never met the eyes of some ol 
the students of Butler college. At any hour of the day one may 
look in with conscious pity at the aproned and white-coated fig- 
ures, compounding, testing, and weighing mid fumes, the sound 
of cracking test tubes, the scurrying of foot-steps and the whist- 
ling of some heroically cheerful indi\idual. As this generous 
feeling of pity passes away, one is astounded to recognize Burk- 



[77] 



hardt yawning as he watches his boiling hqiiids; Solomon, Glen- 
denning and Parker, a faithful trio; J. McBride fanning around 
with such speed that Dorothy McLaughlin's flame flickers as in 
a mighty breeze; Gilpin, Tucker of the eagle eye; Summerlin, our 
facetious Bob and last of all, one "Puder," sometimes moving, 
but most often dozing. If perchance curiosity delays you at the 
stockroom door after a lengthy interval, there may be descried 
amid the prevailing gloom within, the approaching brightness 
of Professor Kuebler's hair or the shadowy outline of Mr. Little, 
while a voice asks your errand. Then as you turn away, de- 
voutly thankful that you are not obliged to wait and wait for 
apparatus, comes the sprightly tripping fudge-maker Dorothy 



Hills, needless to say the aforesaid brightness reappears and 
remains for some time. 

Lest you might wonder who is he of the buff jacket, measured 
tread and more imposing mien than any yet identified, we hasten 
to introduce Professor Brown, the ogre of this retreat, who if you 
wait, can tell of ground hogs and formaldehyde, and a memor- 
able foot race in which he once ran, not ingloriously. But if 
you were to view the verdant freshman in their apartments at 
the farther end of Burgess Hall or panting seek the pure out- 
side atmosphere, there is a hearty farewell and a solemn warn- 
ing to you from the advanced "labites" which justifies the axiom 
that a chemistry "lab." is a necessary discipline for life.
